Working with Jim Henson

The Froud's have worked on several projects within the entertainment industry. This includes, but is not limited to, movies, television series, commercials and other forms of advertisments. The most well known projects were with Muppet creator Jim Henson.

Wendy (Midener) Froud worked for the Henson company for several years as a puppet designer on sets for such programs as THE MUPPET SHOW, THE MUPPET MOVIE, THE DARK CRYSTAL and LABYRINTH. The most popular characters she created with the Jim Henson Company were The Gelflings, Jen and Kira, in the film THE DARK CRYSTAL. 

After he graduated, Brian Froud began working as a graphic designer with many London companies. Soon afterward, he teamed up with Jim Henson to work as the conceptual designer for Henson's upcoming film, THE DARK CRYSTAL. He continued this position with the Jim Henson Company in the film LABYRINTH as well as JIM HENSON'S STORYTELLER series. 

Toby Froud, Brian and Wendy's son, first started his acting career as Sarah's baby brother ("Toby") in the Jim Henson film, LABYRINTH. Now that he's grown up, he is very interested in acting and puppetry. Toby has also spent his summers at Jim Henson's Creature Shop, in New York, creating puppets and other creatures.
